Gauge Types

Gauge Configuration

Each gauge type can be configured in its panel and some parameters can be changed:

  • Gauge name displayed. (Orange)
  • Selected Veronte or one of the linked Veronte units. (Blue)
    • If Selected Veronte is the option taken, the gauge will display the information corresponding to the autopilot which has been clicked on the Side Panel.
  • Variable units and decimals. (Red)
  • Displayed variable. (Green)
  • Gauge type, dimensions and position. (Black)

Gauge configuration

One of the options that appear for all the kind of gauges is the customization of the colour according to the value of the variable shown. It is also possible to set alarms when the value is in a predetermined range.

Alarm Creation

  1. Select the option Range and a new window will be displayed.
  2. In the new window, the user can create different ranges, each one having a certain colour and an associated alarm of the ones configured on Pipe Configuration-Preferences-General-Alert_Audioclips.
  3. Click on the Alarm icon and configure it.

Gauge – Range

Note: In the case of displaying a boolean on the workspace (GNSS Navigation Down for example), in the Range menu will appear automatically the two states, each one with a colour (green,red), and also with the possibility of selecting an audio clip for each one of them.

When displaying a chart, it is useful to overlap with transparencies two or more in the same figure to observe their evolution. To do that, Pipe provides the Change Group option. Right clicking on the graph and selecting this item displays a window where the group name can be introduced. If two charts are in the same group, their relative position will be kept unchanged (they will move together).

Variable Group

The option highlighted in red is the option to lock the chart. If all the elements of the group are marked they will move together, if one is not marked it could be moved with respect to the other group elements.
